OK, we know FoS is just around the corner, but we’ve been clearing out the cupboards here at GRR and have stumbled across a selection of photos that ace photographer Dom Romney selected as his highlights from the 72nd Members’ Meeting back in March.
So, while they’re a couple of months old, they’re still cracking images that we couldn’t resist sharing. We also asked Dom for some his memories from the weekend…
“At most tracks, I’d almost always say I prefer track photography to paddock. However, the pits at Goodwood are amazing and really well thought out so you don’t have frustrating things like traffic cones, unsightly support vehicles and men in high vis vests to spoil the pictures.
“The paddock shelters create a big challenge. A lot of the cars are partly pushed out of their shelters to allow access at the rear, which means half the car is in sunlight and half is in shade. It can be quite tricky to deal with, but it does give you an extra creative option as you can play with the way the light and shade interact.
“Of all the liveries at 72MM, Martini is the one for me, and it’s great to see I back in F1 this year even if it is slightly toned down from the days of old. The stand-out shot for me is the Prost McLaren. Where else in the world would that car just be rolled out, left on its own and not be paid the slightest bit of attention by anyone!”
